Giving Thanks . . . Strawberries in Spring Edition

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;
His love endures forever.
Let them give thanks to the LORD for His unfailing love
and His wonderful deeds for men,
for He satisfies the thirsty
and fills the hungry with good things.
He turned the desert into pools of water
and the parched ground into flowing springs;
They sowed fields and planted vineyards
that yielded a fruitful harvest.
Psalm 107:1, 8, 9, 35, NIV1984

Continuing to count His gifts and grace . . .

1247 morning coffee on the back patio
1248 cool morning in May
1249 quiet rain
1250 shivering by the pool, needing a jacket in May!
1251 onion soup and a long talk with a precious friend
1252 classical music piped into the parking lot
1253 palm trees framed within a pink sunset sky
1254 robin with its fat red breast
1255 laughing long and listening to stories from students home from college
1256 asparagus on the grill
1257 cousins coming in town to visit
1258 toddlers picking strawberries
1259 faces and fingers smeared with sweet, red juice
1260 Gram's strawberry pie
1261 sweet potato pies in spring 
1262 lunch under the shade of an old oak tree
1263 a gathering of old friends to celebrate
1264 the bride's smile
1265 the wedding party praying over the bride and groom
1266 happy tears
1267 watching her dance with her dad
1268 bottle-feeding the little lost kitten
1269 finding the momma cat
1270 dinner with a friend, the honor of listening

Those who are wise will take all this to heart;
they will see in our history the faithful love of the LORD.
Psalm 107:43, NLT
